matthews in washington leading off tonight. no country for old men. politics has become one tough business these days especially for those who have to defend the way things are in this country. in just the past 24 hours three top democrats have decided to quit the business and not run for re-election. senator chris dodd in connecticut, senator byron dorgan in north dakota and governor bill ritter in colorado. while democrats can argue that dodd's quitting improves chances in connecticut, no amount of spin can wash away the obvious conclusion. these democrats have looked at the electoral landscape and would prefer to retire than lose. the implications are human. we'll get to them at the top of the show. republicans are shocked that president obama opted for a criminal trial in federal court for the christmas day bomber even though that is exactly what the bush administration did with the so-called shoe bomber richard reed. where does the hypocrisy end? >>> what is going on with u.s. intelligence? twice in the last few weeks intelligence lapses have led to the disaster, the killing of seven

article in october of 2008 in the "washington post" that whoever was going to win the election the next month was still going to be a senator whether it was mccain or obama and that they should move immediately to develop a fiscal policy instead of waiting until the spring of 2009. well, president obama did weight. in fact he stepped out of the assignment immediately after winning the election. moreover he returns the responsibility for designing that fiscal stimulus to the congress. and i think that in richer spec was a serious mistake. the result was that we had a 787 billion-dollar plan which delivered much less stimulus, much less increase in gdp, much less improvement in employment then $787 billion should have. too much of it went into transfers, into payments for states to finance further transfers by the states and to protect public sector jobs. it was a low multiplier use of funds. nevertheless, it did work as alan krueger said. it worked in a sense and we thought now and finite numbers at the gdp has been better in the past couple of quarters than it otherwise would have. but
